Publisher's Summary

William Crimsworth goes to Brussels to seek his fortune and takes a job teaching at a boarding school for girls. He begins a flirtation with the headmistress, Zoraïde Reuter, but later falls in love with the young pupil-teacher Frances Henri, only to have his courtship thwarted by the jealous Mlle. Reuter.

Deeply critical of a society in which relationships between men and women are reduced to power struggles, The Professor was Charlotte Brontë's first novel.

    "Beautfil use of the English language"

    I love the use of the English language, so flowery and descriptive. The story gives great insight into the minds of men and women from that period, and the codes of conduct and protocol. Unfortunately, I don't speak a word of French, so some passages get lost on me.

    "A Charming Romance..."

    this posthumously published novel is every bit as good as the best of 1800s romance. Bronte at her best!

    "Least favorite bronte story"

    Plot felt meandering. Actor tried but couldn't make it work. The bronte sisters have done so much better

    Story
    "Life well-lived is affirmed !"

    Very good story & narration. To think that Ms Bronte could not find a publisher until she had another book succeed is surprising. This is a sweet story about sticking to your principles and the resulting good life.
